I suffer leg cramps and I'm beginning to think that Magnesium may be the problem.

However I come upon this article with the comment "are you lacking potassium" (half way down), which states that its common with a high protein diet.

What do you think?

eat some more bananas? I'm not being sarcastic, it could also be dehydration.

I always have some salt (potassium) when i get cramps and it gets rid of them so it makes sense

Never heard of leg cramps from protein. Just bad gas that can kill a small child. Are you taking creatine and not drinking enough water?
